The battle ended and on the way home… I walked alongside Yukimura-kun behind the soldiers heading back to the castle.
[YUZUKI]: “… Phew, I’m glad today’s battle ended safely.”
[YUKIMURA]: “Yeah, really. It’s also thanks to everyone doing their best.”
[YUZUKI]: “Haha, that’s true…”
“I want to be together with you from now on as well.
No matter what happens, I’ll protect you so stay smiling by my side.”
Happy New Year! Everyone in the Sanada Army was lively at this year’s passing too. Sasuke and Saizou fought over the kuri kinton…… and it made me think how blessed we were. Every year when I see this sight, I think about how I need to be reliable as the general of the Sanada Army. It’s my goal this year to see everyone smile more than they did last year. Of course, I want to see you smile lots too. –It’d be nice to laugh a lot together with you this year too.
Daikon, potatoes, carrots, rice cakes…… OK, with these the preparation for the zoni is perfect! Every year everyone in the Sanada Army passes the new year eating the vegetable zoni that everyone made. You’ll be together with us this year too, huh. I’m really happy about that. It’d be nice if next year, and the year after that– you continued to be together with us.
I’ll Definitely Come Running

[YUKIMURA]: “For you to be taken away…… I’m really sorry to have you go through such scary experience.”
[YUKIMURA]: “I’m definitely going to save you! No matter what happens, I’ll come running to you.”
[YUKIMURA]: “I want to hurry and save you…… in order to save you, everyone’s been training as hard as they can.”
[YUKIMURA]: “In order to get back your smile, we’re all going to work hard and put our strength together!”
[YUKIMURA]: “Believe in us and hold on……!”
Together With You

[YUKIMURA]: “The daikon I harvested with you was made into stew.”
[YUKIMURA]: “Usually, meals become a struggle and fight between Sasuke, Saizou, and Kamanosuke, but because we harvested a lot, everyone could eat lots and fill their stomachs.”
[YUKIMURA]: “It’s all because of your help. Honestly, thank you!”
[YUKIMURA]: “But it’s a shame we didn’t eat together with you. Next time, by all means I’d like you to eat the Sanada Army’s vaunted cooking.”
[YUKIMURA]: “We’ll welcome you at any time!”
